Lighting contest winners announced The Wakonda Community Club has announced the winners for the Christmas lighting contest.
The winners are: Tie for first place � Dan and Connie Swensen and Tim and Cheryl Vanderkooi; tie for second place ��Glen and Tracey Taggart and Steve and Kristin Mohr.
The balloting was done during the holidays by voters casting ballots at the First Premier bank. The voting was somewhat unusual in that there were ties for both first and second places.
There were many very nice lighting displays in Wakonda this year and everyone is to be commended for their efforts.�It is possible that there may be a need to have an award for the rural area as well, as there are so many farmsteads with wonderful displays.
